Well raced again last night and we put jumps out this time for the mini's. It was so much fun. The jumps weren't high but they were so fun to drive off of and it helped us cheat the corners hehe. Only thing wrong with my car after 3 heats of racing and one bash session during the 2nd race was a missing screw to hold my toe in on my Mini. I ramped my car so much, there was a guy who kept lifting the jump higher and higher. I'd nose dive a few times but it kept rolling over onto it's wheels. The only thing is the tires get eaten up so fast. We have to race our mini's bone stock minus bearings. This is great. I guess I'm gonna end up selling my TA05.

After the second heat, we Mini drivers got together and chatted about body shells and the chassis we each raced. All 3 have different pluses and minuses. I like to be able to take the quick turns verses the high speed turns like the other 2. The Swift can't take them as fast as the BMW but then comes the turning with the BMW, I passed all of them in the corners.

No need to be rude crappy. If you got nothing positive to say then don't say it. What experience do you have with racing or even driving a M03? Please give me some info to go off of. So far your posts are like a whining child who only makes fun of people and doesn't even own a car.

I'm running a sport tuned black can in the mini and a silver can in the swift. Only real difference is my top speed with the black can. Silver is just fine where I race. Just wanted to see if the top speed was high enough at my indoor track.

Default motor

We run silver can (mabuchi, Johnson) motors as per the house rules. The fastest Mini Class cars are about 2-3 laps off the pace of the fastest sedan type cars, about the C-main in most cases. It just depends on the layout of the track that gets changed from time to time. We tried ROAR stock motors for a few rounds and the cars got quicker as you would expect, some of the best times would have been in the top of the B and bottom of the A. We went back to the silver can motors though because the tire wear got to be a bit much. Besides the mini class isnt supposed to outrun the sedans is it?

Sports-tuned mostly out here in Australia - though some clubs run silver can as well.
